, actually, over the past four years, during the current administration, the obama administration and under democrat control here the last four years, we have passed all of one appropriation bill on time. that's one out of 48 that was done on time. it was a milcon bill about 2011, as i call. wrong is better with a deadline. again, you see this with the debt limit and with what we just went through these last few weeks. we can do better. this legislation would keep the impetus for congress to act without including the threat of another costly and destructive shutdown. i think it's a good idea. it's one that is already bipartisan, should be adopted by both sides. we had a vote on it earlier this year, it got nearly half of this chamber. i hope others will take a look at it. i think, particularly with what we have just gone through, it's something that our constituents would think would make a lot of sense. i hope it gets the support that it deserves in this body. of course, in addition to dealing with the government shutdown in this budget conference that we are meeting on this week, we also
to be with you, i'm anne-marie green. well, a senior obama administration official says the u.s. is considering ending its spying on friendly heads of state. it's part of a fallout following revelations that the u.s. has spied on german chancellor angela merkel and 34 other foreign leaders. president obama said he was unaware of high level ungz dral eavesdropping but the los angeles times reports that the state department signed off on the process and a key part that is calling for total review of u.s. intelligence programs. susan mcginnis is in washington. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, anne-marie. there is no final decision yet from the white house about ending these spying programs. the white house may be waiting to see what happens here in congress. and more lawmakers are now calling for changes including the head of the senate intelligence committee. senate intelligence chairwoman dianne feinstein expressed outrage that the u.s. spied on allies including german chancellor angela merkel. she issued a statement monday saying i am totally opposed. the white house said it's reviewing
.c. circuit in favor of the obama administration's aggressive administrative overreach. if these tactics succeed, the senate will be weakened as a institution and the nation's second highest court will be transformed into a far-left ideological body. but i would also remind my colleagues what goes around comes around in the united states senate. when republicans control the senate and we have a republican in the white house, i would warn my colleagues that the same rules that they put into effect with the nuclear option will be used to their disadvantage then and we shouldn't do it. we shouldn't go there. but it's clear what the motivation is. again, this is not about the efficient administration of justice, impartial justice. this is about getting your way and getting a rubber stamp on the actions of regulatory overreach that are far too common here in washington, d.c. well, it is true that the d.c. circuit court has ruled against the obama administration's regulatory agencies, but it's also true that they've affirmed many of the most important and far-reaching decisions of the obama ad
administration is reporting that a weekend crash of the obama care website has now been fixed. things are back up and running again. but up and running is, of course, a relative term. four weeks into the obama care rollout, where does the controversial program stand right now? where is it heading? let's have a serious discussion right now between the "new york times" columnist nicholas kristof and bill kristol. thanks for coming in. do you have an understanding how the administration could screw this up, the signature achievement of president obama, during these past four weeks? >> it's astonishing. i think the republicans completely blew it when they were diverting everybody from this mistake by focusing on the government shutdown and then the obama administration completely blew it by having an absolutely awful rollout and then waiting so long to acknowledge its severity and waiting for the surge. so the only thing i can say is that i think that attention was broken among so many different folks in the obama administration, that there was no single adult really in charge. >> do you have a good

to the massive problems with the obama website. the obama administration will now allow individuals extra time to sign up for insurance plans. ko im is live with the story. what's the deadline now. >> reporter: good morning. the deadline is now march 31 but with that extra time comes some extra questions and there are calls to extend that deadline. now that's been done, there are some concerns about some new penalties that may be associated with the extension. you see, insurance coverage usually starts at the beginning of the month so if by the original deadline you had signed up by march 15, then you would not get coverage till april 1 which would mean that you would be breaking the law. so now you have some extra time, an extra six weeks. when you file your taxes for next year, you don't need to fill out a waiver. a guidance was released last night saying you don't need to claim that exemption. the health and human services saying, quote,, the administration has determined it would be unfair to require individuals to make penalty payments. the penalty would be starting at $95 per person just

. over at the white house the obama administration is navigating through rough political waters. joining me now mark mazzetti national security correspondent for "new york times" and chris cillizza nbc contributor and host of "in play." i was talking to congressman schiff on the committee and he said there's going to have to be a narrowing of the nsa's reach of broad metadata as it were. he does not see justification for spying on friendly allies. that is really the flash point that has got europeans and now senator feinstein on the senate side and senator collins on the senate side who say they were not briefed in the senate intelligence community. >> interesting you have a lot more congressional outrage over the listening to foreign leaders than the collection of metadata of american citizens. but there is sort of two controversies at the same time, the foreign and domestic. that's what various communities hearing from intelligence officials about. you're correct, the white house really has had to face a cre amount of controversy in the last semple days and political fallout from the l
surrounding the website the obama administration officially granted a six week extension for shoppers to sign up for coverage next year. you now have until march 31st to do so. course correction of the roll out of obama care may be the least of the white house's problems. for years president obama denied that the affordable care act would change health care coverage for millions of americans. in fact it was a key component of the president's sales pitch to the public. >> if you like your health care plan you keep your health care plan. these folks need to stop scaring everybody. nobody will force you to leave your health care plan. i don't want government bureaucrats meddling in your health care. your employer provides you health insurance on the job, nobody is talking about messing with that. if you're one of the more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. >> but now an nbc news report finds the opposite happens to be true. buried in a document from 2010 of obama care regulations, lisa myers discovered the white house officials were

it. so we went back to the 2010 obama care regulations and found that the administration actually had estimated that 40% to 67% of those in the individual market would not be able to meet the test to be grandfathered, which is what it takes to keep your own policy, just because of the normal churn in the markets. so they knew a lot of the people in the individual market would not be able to keep their policies but went out there and left the impression that everyone could keep their policy if they liked it. if they had been saying most people can keep their policy if they like it, then it would be accurate. but that's unfortunately not what he's been saying. >> so, lisa, the bottom line here is here that the standard of care through the aca changed so that now all the policies that the insurance companies have to meet that standard of care. if they weren't grandfathered in properly, that means that they are unable to sell them once again. >> that's correct. you're absolutely right. if you do not meet a rather narrow test to be grandfathered, then your new policy has to meet the standa

news continues to come to light about the poor workmanship that went into the obama administration's website for obamacare. it's a problem, it's a mistake and americans are dealing with it all across america. the associated press reports, and i quote this, that folks in the administration saw red flags for months. and "the washington post" said that bureaucrats insisted on plowing ahead despite this known failure that would lie ahead. so, mr. speaker, we would ask a question. why are the american people going to be required to be in a health care system other than the one they chose? and the answer is because president obama and democrats passed a law years ago that is something that the american people do not want and were misled into. premiums are skyrocketing and most -- and some insurers are kicking people off their plan that they were on entirely. mr. speaker, republicans have a plan for the future, and it allows people to have their own doctor, their own insurance company and to make their own decisions. i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has

the obama administration has known the president's vow was untrue since 2010 even as the president continued to repeat the misleading claim over and over and over again. jon: as it turns out millions of americans with individual policies are finding they can not keep their current plan despite the president's promises. four sources deeply involved in the affordable care act tell nbc news, 50 to 75% of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a cancellation letter or the equivalent over the next year. well the white house has a response to that. they say the consumers who are getting notices are in plans that do not provide all these protections but in the vast majority of cases those same insurers will automatically shift their enrollees to a plan that provides new consumer protections and for nearly half of individual market enrollees, discounts through premium tax credits. but you never heard the president say that. this morning the house ways and means committee is examining all the significant ongoing problems with the rollout of the affordable
